Tried Pei Modern on a flying visit into Melbourne. The restaurant was packed with every table filled for the 8 pm seating. Yet it feel oppressive. Service staff of 5 plus the owner, were rushed off their feet but the service was excellent with some nice personal touches here and there. The food was super interesting with my Kohlrabi starter...

We are from NT and had been told this was a great place for lunch. Decided to stop by for a drink and check the place out but felt like staff were not interested in serving us. Maybe the service is better if you are eating but as a place to go ... It is good but not great.

We had our Xmas lunch here and enjoyed a fairly low key luncheon. We had a couple of local brewed beers before being seated and eyeing up the menu. The list of entrees and mains were good and there was a little bit of variety. I went for the ribs and across the table there was duck, the Lamb Shoulder... More

Interesting restaurant at the Paris End of the Melbourne CBD, no need to book for a mid week dinner but weekend do it! Decor is rather strange and disjointed, in an "Ikea" style with quite disturbing sticks as roof and ceiling art, but the hard floors and loud chair scraping distract from the wide wine list and fresh menu choices....

We have dined at this gem several times and It is always consistently very good. We lunched a few days ago and it was fabulous. We shared the whole dory, sides of chips and salad and paired this with a lovely bottle of Pinot Gris it was all executed very well. The fish was incredible - fresh and had that... More

Perhaps one of the best restaurants meals we've had - a must if in Melbourne. Excellent service, knowledgable staff and out of this world food based largely upon local produce, all at an acceptable price - not cheap, but for what you get ...5 star.

Amazing atmosphere, friendly waiting staffs giving us good recommendation - entre, main and desserts. Started with fried green chillies to share. Steak just "melts" in your mouth and desserts just colourful and delicious. Bookings are essential during November and December. Place is quiet enough and need not have to scream at each other. A relaxing drink in the bar after... More

A group of us attended during the Melbourne Cup Carnival time frame, so there were lots of beautiful people out and about and a glorious day. Good service, great weather all combined with quality food - I had the beef which was exquisite. The only minor issue was delivery of the shared salads and triple cooked fries/potato strips. They arrived... More

Started off well with great veal tartare and croquettes. All went downhill from there. Both our Steaks appeared to be cooked to medium but we're dry and chewy. Sides were nice. The dessert was a disaster. The waitress had accidentally given us the lunch time desert menu & didn't realise until we came to order. She explained her error but... More

Great spot for a business lunch. There's a two course menu for $36 with three choices for entrees and three for mains. The food is good (the rump was exceptional). The service is friendly and appropriately speedy. Tables outside are better than in doors.
